        Many people get so used to living with stress that they do not even realize how much stress affects them. These online tests can help you become more aware of the sources and types of stress in your life by helping you identify your stress levels and how you deal with stress. Personality and emotional states also affect how you deal with stress, so I have included some tests that deal with these areas as well.

    These tests are not intended as a substitute for professional help or assessment, but are provided as a means for you to identify possible areas/concerns regarding stress and your psychological and emotional well being. Please consult a health care professional should the results of any of these tests cause you any concern and/or if you feel that you are having great difficulty in coping with the stress in your life.
